Summer Real Estate Market is HOT!

Plymouth, Canton, Northville Real EstateWelcome to the busy summer home buying season!

And for home owners, this means an opportunity to get a great price for their home for sale.

Not all Plymouth homes for sale are destined to enjoy the same level of success, however. Thus, today I’m going to share with you five steps that you can take to ensure your home is one of the ones that gets sold for a great price this summer!

What Every Plymouth Home Seller Should Do Right Now

Take care of obvious repairs. You don’t have to be a home inspector to notice chipped paint or scuffed up floors. So make sure you’re noting what needs to be fixed and then get those items fixed ASAP. Buyers will appreciate the attention to detail.

Declutter your home now. In the short term, decluttering your home is going to help your property feel more spacious and more inviting, which is definitely attractive to home buyers. In the long run, when it comes time to move, you’ll have less things to pack because you’ll have already done the heavy lifting with decluttering your home.

Depersonalize your home. This includes removing personal collectibles, family heirlooms and even family portraits. By doing so, you’ll make it easier for home buyers to envision living there themselves, which is what you want. Otherwise, buyers will feel like mere guests in your home and they won’t feel as compelled to make a purchase offer.

Get rid of anything polarizing. Like it or not, sometimes a buyers opinion on your views can decide whether they purchase your home or not. So get rid of controversial elements like religious or political items. That way, you don’t risk buyers prejudging your home because of you as an individual.

Give your home plenty of curb appeal. We can’t say this enough: First impressions matter and the very first impression buyers are going to get is while they’re walking up to your front door. So make sure the lawn is mowed, the hedges are trimmed and the lawn ornaments are kept to a minimum.
